Review Courtesy ofAll Things Urban Fantasy

Fiendish demons and office work may seem like they both belong in the same circle of hell, but in TEMPING IS HELL, the first book in Cathy Yardley’s new Necessary Evil series, takes a humorous approach that results in plenty of witty dialogue, hilarious demons, and endlessly amusing characters.

‘Super Temp’ extraordinaire Kate is a very resourceful confident character. She’s creative, sassy, and willing to go the extra mile even when given extremely tedious/ pointless tasks (like helping out some cannibalistic demons do a mind numbingly boring task of sorting through papers). On a personal side, Kate’s family life isn’t as easy. Her family has little faith in her ability to anything right and constantly expecting her to repeat her past failures.

The only real complaint I had was related to the plot which was confusing for the first half of the book. It did eventually come together, but that confusion is a big part of why the chapters from Thomas’s POV weren’t as enjoyable as Kate’s. But the excellent chemistry and adorable banter between these two (including their first meeting between involving Sir Mix-A-Lot, booty shaking, and collecting piles of papers) was strong enough to compensate for that one shortcoming. Overall, TEMPING IS HELL is light, funny, and hellishly good. I am looking forward to more books in the Necessary Evil series.
